Best Taiwanese so far (cash only)

We went there for lunch on an early Sunday. It was packed but the wait wasn’t too bad. We ordered several dishes to share: pig ears, clear broth beef noodles soup, scallions pancake, layered pancake and fried chicken. Everything was terrific exempt the beef noodles soup that was a bit different... read more

I tried this Dim Sum restaurant for the first time yesterday. Great waitress and some of the dim sum was good. The down side was, really super greasy food. I ordered the won ton soup, it was not even close to tasty, super bland.. I might try it one more time.

For authentic experience, this is very good Chinese "home style" food. The boiled peanuts, breakfast foods (soy milk, etc), etc, etc.

Surprising authentic Chinese restaurant. Wide choice of tasty dishes following the tradition of dim sum restaurants. The requirement for cash payment only is not a big constraint because you pay less than what you think you should... Friendly and effective service

Amazing Chinese food! Pork dumplings are awesome and so are the noodle dishes, the spicy cucumber salad and the spicy sesame noodle dish. Fried bread on Sunday is amazing! This place only takes cash, so come prepared. Staff is friendly and the place is super clean. its not very big and it gets really crowded around meal times.

I loved the authentic atmosphere and the prices are reasonable, but the food was 50/50. We enjoyed the fried dumplings, scallion pancakes (would have been better with a dipping sauce) and ground pork with noodles. The fried chicken and beef/noodle soup were not good. The soup was too salty and lacked depth of flavor. The dark meat chicken benefited from... More

I am not a big fan of Chinese food but this restaurant is definitively the best in the area. Know for dumplings. Price are low

We were a party of five at A & J. They offer a wide range of choices of noodles, dim sum, and soups. Seafood was very limited on the menu. This authentic Chinese food was tasty. It was very busy when we dined here but service did not suffer. A & J was a bit noisy, but tolerable. Ample parking.... More

Used to live in the area, and amongst my Taiwanese friends, this is a rock star. Never disappoints. Went back this weekend and it did not disappoint still! We ordered the Niang Mien, Mustard greens with tofu and edamame, beef noodle soup with fresh cut noodles, scallion pancake, pan fried dumplings. Smoked chicken. It is very reasonable and they are...
